Depression can take a toll on an individual's physical and mental health. In this post, a man shared his dilemma about calling his girlfriend lazy due to her depression. After some reflection, he realized his mistake and apologized to her. The couple met up and discussed ways to make their relationship work. They came up with a plan to help her with her depression, by suggesting she stops job hunting and focuses on herself. They also agreed on having a deep cleaning day every Sunday, which has worked out well for them. The man is putting in more effort to support his girlfriend and learn about depression. We hope this couple continues to make progress and support each other.
